HIV/AIDS

Goal

The project of dance4life empowers young people with a schools project made up of four parts: inspire, educate, activate and celebrate. Here on Pifworld we are asking for your support for the first part of the schools project, which inspires the youth to participate in dance4life and become actively involved. The tour is a fun, interactive experience that educates young people and energizes them with enthusiasm to take responsibility in the response to HIV and AIDS. The young people who have participated then have the chance to go on and participate in the following three parts of the dance4life schools project.

Project blog

PIF World is the platform where non-profits, companies and individuals come together to help create a better world. 

This is the space where your non-profit will publish their story. Blogging can help spread the passion for their cause. This is because crowdsourcing is fuelled by storytelling and helps spread the word about fundraising projects. It keeps you informed and brings in new supporters.  

Blogs, news and information from this non-profit will soon appear on this page - so watch this space.

HIV/AIDS

Problem statement

Mexico has an estimated 180,000 people living with HIV, with rates rising in the rural areas. Although the government is willing to endorse sexual and reproductive health programmes, such as dance4life, there are conservative parts of the population (both religious and non-religious) that do not endorse such programmes. The government wanted to put condom machines in high schools, but the church is against it.

Goal

The project of dance4life empowers young people with a schools project made up of four parts: inspire, educate, activate and celebrate. Here on Pifworld we are asking for your support for the first part of the schools project, which inspires the youth to participate in dance4life and become actively involved. The tour is a fun, interactive experience that educates young people and energizes them with enthusiasm to take responsibility in the response to HIV and AIDS. The young people who have participated then have the chance to go on and participate in the following three parts of the dance4life schools project.

Main activities

We kick off with the Heart Connection Tour. This is where each school is visited by the dance4life Tour Team – which is no ordinary team, we're talking dancers, musicians, peer educators and young people living with HIV. The Heart Connection Tour is a fun, interactive experience that educates young people and energizes them with enthusiasm to take responsibility in the response to HIV and AIDS. Next they have the opportunity to learn in more detail how to take responsibility by participating in Skills4Life. This is an in-depth programme where they learn more about HIV including: prevention, sexuality, drug abuse, and their rights. They also pick up valuable skills about negotiation (No means No), communication and decision making, which they can apply in their daily lives.

External risks

A thorough review is done in each country before the project is chosen to ensure that the external conditions conform. Project risks can be the successful implementation of the project in schools: dance4life overcomes this by creating partnerships with other organisations, schools, teachers, DJs. Most importantly the dance4life schools project uses the language of young people and connects to them!

    Zoals jullie misschien weten, zet ik me regelmatig in voor Dance4Life. Zo ook dit jaar bij de Vodafone Kerstdonatie. Daarom wil ik jullie vragen om jullie PIF-wallet leeg te maken bij het project van Dance4Life in Mexico, waardoor weer een hele hoop schoolkinderen voorlichting zullen krijgen. Gewoon een paar getallen: Elke 12 seconden wordt iemand besmet met HIV. Meer dan de helft van deze nieuwe patiënten is jonger dan 25 jaar... Elke 15 seconden sterft er iemand aan de gevolgen van AIDS. Tel eens uit hoe lang je hebt gedaan over het lezen van deze tekst. Dance4Life wil wereldwijd onder jongeren bewustzijn creëren voor deze problematiek en hun leren hoe eenvoudig preventie kan zijn. Daarvoor is natuurlijk geld nodig. Help ons om hun te helpen. Dance 4 Life H.I.V. Aids is lethal... Merry Christmas Thanks4Life!

    Waarom Stichting Guus Steunen: Guus is een jongen van ruim 2 jaar oud. Ik ken hem persoonlijk. Het is een lieve vrolijke jongen, alleen heeft Guus een forse ontwikkelingsachterstand. Het is niet duidelijk wat de ontwikkelingsachterstand veroorzaakt. Hij ontwikkelt zich wel, alleen in een veel lager tempo dan lijfstijdsgenootjes. De ouders van Guus willen hem met hem naar dolfijntherapie op Curacao. Dolfijntherapie is misschien wel één van de meest onderschatte vormen van therapie bij kinderen met een ontwikkelingsachterstand. De resultaten zijn eenvoudigweg verbluffend. Het concentratie- en communicatie vermogen van de kinderen zijn halverwege de 10-daagse therapie al enorm verbeterd. Doordat de concentratie zo sterk toeneemt, zie je vaak dat kinderen ook op fysiek vlak veel meer gaan bereiken. Het doel is met Guus een significante toename in zijn communicatie- en concentratie-vermogen te bereiken. Via Stichting Guus wordt er een mogelijkheid gecreeerd om deze dolfijntherapie te kunnen volgen. Voor een project als dit is veel geld nodig. De kosten van de 10-daagse therapie alleen al bedragen 7000 dollar. De reis en verblijf kosten komen daar nog bij. Daarom is jullie hulp hard nodig voor dit project.

    Let's go against Ebola! Although the time that I thought Micheal Jackson was pretty cool is two decades ago, I must admit that he isn't so Bad at all. He didn't frighten me with his Triller album, the real frightning stuff came later on, as we all know. But it is exactly the period between the mentioned albums that he hit the charts with 'Heal the world, '. This was 100% corny stuff, but the message was clear: make it a better place! So, tho come back on this motivation issue, let's follow this Wizzard of Oss and make the world a better place. With Pifworld it is so easy! Good luck with Playing it Forward!

  • Start Dancing - Stop AIDS!

    After fundraising for Dance4Life in Kenya, I decided to become an ambassador for this year's project in Mexico. Just a few numbers... Every 12 seconds a new person gets infected with HIV occurs, of which half of them are people under 25. Every 15 seconds a person dies of an AIDS-related cause. Dance4Life wants to create awareness for this around the globe and teach young people how easy prevention can be. Their school programs need money of course. Help us and them! Start dancing - Stop AIDS! Thanks!
